Psalms 63:1-8 NLV “O God, You are my God. I will look for You with all my heart and strength. My soul is thirsty for You. My flesh is weak wanting You in a dry and tired land where there is no water. So I have seen You in the holy place. And I have seen Your power and Your shining-greatness. My lips will praise You because Your loving-kindness is better than life. So I will give honor to You as long as I live. I will lift up my hands in Your name. My soul will be filled as with rich foods. And my mouth praises You with lips of joy. On my bed I remember You. I think of You through the hours of the night. For You have been my help. And I sing for joy in the shadow of Your wings. My soul holds on to You. Your right hand holds me up.”
The greatest gift God gives me is his Word. I love it more than life. It brings such peace, joy and contentment. In the middle of so much strife in the world, I know that when I call, He answers me. I’m never alone-NEVER! I can close my eyes in the middle of the fiercest storm and tune into His voice. It speaks peace and calms my soul.
What about you? Is God the first thing you think about in the morning? Do you think of Him in the night? What do you feed on for breakfast? Is physical food the only thing you devour? Are you constantly praising Him? Do you remind yourself of what the Lord has done for you? Is your focus on the problem or on the problem solver? Are you so wrapped up in how bad things are that you forget the goodness of the Lord?
Lord, I thank You for Your Word. It is alive. It is enough. As I feed on You and Your Word, show me great things that I don’t have revelation of yet because I want to know more and more of You. There are so many things I don’t know yet but I desire to know of You. You are my King, You are my Lord, You are all I need. Bless Israel, oh Lord. Help me to remember that today it’s about You, Lord. Not the elections, political agendas or media mayhem. As you said in Psalm 91, I will look on, but it won’t affect me because You are my dwelling place. I will hold fast to my peace.
